Triathlète, Trois-Rivières, Canada

I’ve been passionate about sports for the last 4 years .. and I’ve chosen to devote my passion to triathlon. I have a need to challenge myself and to perform in anything that I take on. I always give my 110%. With the help of my coach Pascal Dufresne, I took part in several competitions in Quebec and got some results I’m very happy with. My goal is to be part of the pro 70.3 tour team in 2017.

About 3 years ago I was working at Laferté Bicycles, my local bike store in my home town of Trois-Rivières (Québec, Canada). When a new nutritional fruit bars for sports came into the store I decided to test it …. I had never liked gels, but since that time I tried out FRUIT2 bars and found they worked for me pretty much straight away, especially on the bike. Now I can’t do without my FRUIT2 bars during my long road workouts or during triathlons.

My favourite bar ..

During my 70.3 triathlon I fed with FRUIT2 bars, either apricot or strawberry flavour. I find them really easy to digest and a pleasing texture, no digestion problems and what’s more they taste  great. It’s always a pleasure to take a bite! I have a soft spot for apricot FRUIT2.
